Jean-Luc Godard

Fiction, 1962, 83′

With a stunning black and white photograph by Raoul Coutard, Vivre sa vie is a film built for Anna Karina, which shows that besides being an icon of the Nouvelle Vague, she is a fabulous actress. Very few faces would pass unhindered in comparison to Falconetti in Dreyer’s Jeanne d’Arc (a film that Karina’s character will see, in a sequence of Vivre sa vie), also a sign of Godard’s genius and boldness. Godard in honor of Dreyer. Karina’s close ups in front of Falconetti’s close ups. (Cinemateca Portuguesa)
